In any case, “Love and Death” has been mapped out as a completely thoroughly considered film. It’s significantly more develop than the anything-goes style of prior Allen films like “Bananas.”
Allen’s start is a straightforward one. Envision the essential Woody Allen character – modest, uncouth, completely entranced by ladies and frightened to death of them, furtively sentimental and place him in a period twist that leads back to Russia at the season of Napoleon. Give him a youth experience with Death (who looks, obviously, as he did in “The Seventh Seal”) and give him a question for Death: “What’s it like after you bite the dust? Are there any young ladies?” Raise him to be an “aggressor weakling,” draft him and send him off to battle the French, and afterward wed him to a wonderful young lady who has compassion for him since (she trusts) he will be shot dead in a duel.
